The Browns have an intriguing situation that could become quite appealing once the team gets their interview process underway. There is plenty of promising potential with the position given that there is some young talent on both sides of the ball such as quarterback Baker Mayfield, running back Nick Chubb, defensive end Myles Garrett, and cornerback Denzel Ward. This group of talent could grow into forming a strong foundation for the franchise to lean on over the next several years.
Meanwhile, the team is still strapped with plenty of cap space even after inking players like Pro Bowl wideout Jarvis Landry to a lucrative deal last offseason. There could be plenty more proven talent on the open market that could see the team as an appealing landing spot next March if they hire the right coach. Meanwhile, the plethora of draft picks could be used to trade for proven talent or used in the draft to add more promising young talent to the mix.
It is a situation that could become quite prosperous with the right hiring by the Browns’ front office. Things should foreseeably pick up on this front after the season comes to a conclusion for Cleveland as they have indicated that Williams will get a shot to interview for the position. In the meantime, these next several weeks could be a chance to make a more compelling case on the field for them to possibly make a notable hire.
